With so many great guitar players excelling in so many metal bands these days one thing that can set a band apart from the pack is a great drummer. Once a top notch guitar player was the marquee member of any metal band worth their weight in upside down crosses. Now headbangers come out to see a new set of virtuosos. Speed beat maniac Dave Lombardo, precision maniac Mike Portney. You can also count Gene Hoglan to that list. Hoglan has been an important member of Bar Area thrash veterans Testament, the speed metal band Dark Angel, and screamo band Strapping Young Lad. All bands with amazing drum jackhammer beats. He brings the Gene Hoglan Experience to The Club Milano tonight. It's billed as a drum clinic as well as a concert. A must see for any budding drummer or advanced drummers looking for tips. It's gonna be a great night of metal start to finish with three other bands on the bill. Oh yea, did I mention Gene Hoglan is the drummer for Dethklok? Yes the grindcore cartoon band. How cool is that?
